We have a 10-year-old 2-story brick house with wood trim. JayHawk Exteriors prepped all the wood trim, repaired/replaced a small amount of deteriorated wood, removed gutters, wrapped all soffits and trim with Certainteed vinyl, and replaced gutters.
We decided to get vinyl trim wrap because we didn't want to go through the cost and hassle of painting trim every few years. We were approached by another, more aggressively advertised company in the area. Wet were turned off by the high-pressure sales tactics and price and decided to seek another quote.
We contacted JayHawk for a quote after reading their favorable reviews on Angie's List.. Mr. Higgins (a.k.a. "Country") inspected the property and gave us a quote. I was initially impressed by several things.
We were not required to have both husband and wife present (something the other company insisted on), which was very helpful for us given my spouse's schedule. Since he was a project supervisor, not just a sales rep, Mr. Higgins was able to speak authoritatively about the scope of the work to be done. I also liked knowing that I was meeting the person who would actually be supervising the job. His presentation was straight-forward. He demonstrated the product, shared pictures of examples, and showed evidence the company was insured and properly licensed. He provided a time-frame and a price quote. He answered all my questions. Then he left me to talk it over with my husband and get back to him. No hard sell, no games. His price quote was less than half what the other company's rep started at.
Once we signed the contract, work was quickly scheduled and completed. Mr. Higgins introduced the crew supervisor, Eddie, on the first day and checked in periodically to inspect progress. The team took about 3 days to complete the job with only one day missed when it rained. The crew was polite and professional. They arrived early each day and worked steadily til dinner-time with a reasonable lunch break. Each day they tidied up the yard. On the last day, there was a large pile of debris in the yard, but it was completely removed the next morning. Mr. Higgins closed out the job with a final inspection. We do find an occasional word chip behind the bushes, but overall they were very neat and respectful of my landscaping, even with all the ladders that had to be right up against the foundation plantings.
The quality of the work appears to be excellent. I would definitely hire this company again.
